Choosing the right garage door for your home

Interior design is all the rage, but when it comes to home aesthetics many skim past the overall feel that exterior design can contribute. The majority of home improvement projects focus on the interior detailing which means that sometimes, the outside your home doesn’t get enough attention. But every detail, whether big or small can have an affect on the aesthetics of your home. Here are some tips in choosing the right garage door for your home.

Choose the right material for your home

It’s very important to choose the perfect material that will suit where your home’s location. Remember to keep in mind the environment and the neighbourhood of your house, (eg. is it hot? Does it rain a lot? Do you get a lot of tornados and earthquakes?). You also need to keep in mind other factors like durability, maintenance, design and cost. Different options for materials include wood, aluminium, steel and fibreglass or PVC overlay.

Choose the perfect style for your home

It’s also important to determine what kind of design compliments your home. The style of your door can make or break the aesthetics of your house. There are different styles you can choose from. These include:

● Gregorian

● Arts & Crafts

● Edwardian

● 50’s Ranch Style

● Contemporary Modern

Choose the right colour and finishing details that will suit your home

Picking the right colour is essential, because it needs to complement the entire look of your home. Consider matching the garage door to your home’s window trim rather than to the front door. Alternatively, you could go for a colour that blends in with your siding or brick. For example, for less contrast with red brick, choose a beige or tan that matches the mortar in the brick, instead of a white.

For the finish, choose a style that will match the personality of your home. Options include but are not limited to Panelling, Decorative Hardware, Decorative Strapping, and Windows.

Consider the other details

Apart from the aesthetics of your door, there are several things to consider, like the convenience of installation, the availability of the materials in your location, as well as practical things like safety and Taking these things into consideration will reap great benefits for your home in the long run.
